The Boston Red Sox announced on Monday that they have exercised manager Alex Cora’s club option, which ties him to the team for the 2023 and 2024 seasons.

“I am beyond grateful for this opportunity to manage the Red Sox,” said Cora in a press release. “We experienced so many special moments as a team and as a city in 2021, but we still have unfinished business to take care of. I am excited about the current state of our organization and eager to continue my work with our front office, coaches, players, and everyone who makes this such a special place.”

Cora, 46, led the Red Sox to a 92-70 record during the 2021 regular season. They eliminated the New York Yankees in the wild-card game before defeating the Tampa Bay Rays, who owned the best record in the American League, in the ALDS. Boston eventually lost the ALCS to the Houston Astros in six games.

Cora has amassed a 284-202 record in three seasons as Red Sox manager and won a World Series with the team in 2018.
